have come to believe that commercially Christmas has lost its true
meaning. Nowadays it's not about celebrating the birth of Jesus, it's
about the filling up the tree with the brightest, gaudiest, most
colourful ornaments you can find. This year, instead of piling on the
tinsel, I decided to make some of my own ornaments with the focus being
on the nativity.
Step 1: How to Make Nativity Scene Egg Ornaments
You will need:
Blown eggs (click for how to: http://www.home-dzine.co.za/crafts/craft-bloweggs.htm)
Plascon polvin acrylic paint or matt acrylic
Plascon GlazeCoat, ModPodge or clear acrylic sealer
Hot glue gun and Glitter glue

1. Paint the eggs with Plascon Polvin. You will need to apply two to three coats.
2. While the paint dries, print out and cut out the nativity scenes.
3. Coat with a liberal layer of Plascon Glazecoat (ModPodge or clear acrylic sealer).
4. While still wet, place the image on top and apply more sealer with your paintbrush.
5. Use your fingertip to smooth out any air bubbles and creases.
6. Use a hot glue gun and glitter glue to attach the hangers.
egg ornament features a scene from the nativity - one on the front and
another on the back. I used blown eggs for the ornaments and printed out
nativity images that were then stuck onto the eggs with ModPodge.
Print out the images provided here and cut them out to fit onto your blown eggs.
